Hi,

maybe i am confused, but there was an update last week for the chrome extension on my windows 10 machine, and since then i cant use Strg+Alt+A anymore. Only to open the Enpass app. In the chrome extension i only can use Strg (Ctrl for english keyboard) OR Alt, but not both. 

Why was this changed? 

br,
Sven

Hello @SvenS,

Recently, we have released a new version of the Enpass app and its Extension which has an inline menu feature for a smoother autofill functionality. Enpass extension now lets the browser control the keyboard shortcuts natively that means users can set their preferred hotkey as per their convenience. For more details, please visit our user manual.

Hi,

thanks for the answer. 

I checked the manual, but the problem is like shown in the picture:

For automatic fill in i have to choose Strg OR Alt, but i had before Strg + Alt + A. So is this a bug or why its not working anymore?

 

ps: Strg equals Ctrl

It's definitely a bug. I used to have CTRL+X, it's not working anymore. Every time I press this (or any other) combination, only the enpass extension settings getting opened.

The only combination that works correctly is the default CTRL+SHIFT+PERIOD one. First, who designed this combination? In the middle of the keyboard and you have to lift up your hand if you using your right hand for the mouse. On the left side is more natural for the most users and don't need to remove your hand from the mouse (Something like CTRL+SHIFT+A, CTRL+ALT+A, CTRL+SHIFT+F, CTRL+ALT+F).

I'm using Linux (debian buster) / Firefox ESR (up-to-date)

Hello @SvenS@randomguy,

We are aware of the concern of setting new a shortcut & getting accustomed to it, but for a deep robust browser and Enpass Extension integration in the long term, Enpass extension lets the browsers control the keyboard shortcuts natively. Also, this way Enpass Extension doesn't interfere with a browser’s default shortcuts. For example, users can use "ctrl+key" or "alt+key" to activate the extension or to autofill (as shown in the picture below).
